Bloodrage. Only X58 board I've owned and I'm very happy with it. Had it since it was first released.

that being said, MOST people will choose a mobo by 1. appearance 2. price and 3. features... IN THAT ORDER. it has little to do with actual performance anymore.
Thats how my wife would buy a computer. I look at reviews, benchmarks, accessibility/upgrade options, and price. If I was an eye candy guy I would go with the Asus WS Revolution, 6 PCI-E slots is enough epeen for me. Personally I love my Evga board cause it clocks well, bios supports everything I want/need, and they have excellent overclocking utilities for both cpu's and gpu's.

I would say that from everything I have read about the x58 boards, if I had the chance to buy again I would strongly consider the Asus Gene. It packs alot of power for the price point.

i do think alot of you speak and vote from either 1. looks(board looks cool) or 2. you own it(and havent tried anything else)
That would be me and I don't really see anything wrong with that. If I say I like a board, that's not product recommendation, and I can tell you that this board, in my hands, hasn't seen its fullest potential. Some of us just appreciate a good looking, solid performing piece of hardware and don't need to flip what we own every couple weeks and get something new. Not all of us are junkies, in other words... not that there's anything wrong with that either. ;)

all im saying is it is impossible to know if something is your favorite or the best if you have only tried 1.

you cant buy a bag of suckers from the store and eat a cherry one then tell everyone that cherry is the best if you havent tried all the flavors in the bag.

that make any sense?

As I mentioned, the Blood Rage is the best looking board, hands down. Unfortunately, it's not the best performing board. It has a low max BCLK, and the board has some difficulty recovering from a bad OC, unlike the Biostar and Asus boards. There is danger in buying for looks, because sometimes they are very deceiving and often do not equate to performance.

Can't say it's may favorite yet, but I ordered an Asus Z8NA-D6, There not in stock though, the store expects a few June 5th. I bought it because it's dirt cheap.

I already received my new memory and expect my coolers mounting kits to arrive tomorrow. CPU's will come together with the board.

Neither, it's ASUS P6T. Mine is almost on its way.

P6T is a rockstar when it comes for value for money.

The Gigabyte EX58-UD5 really needs to be added. This is the first board ever that I haven't had to reset cmos manually, and I've owned it for two weeks. The thing always recovers from bad overclocks on it's own. The board also is supposed to have a very high max bclk, but I can't confirm this. The highest I've pushed it is 220. It is built like a tank, with 2oz of copper in the PCB. Thickest PCB I've ever seen in a MB.
